How many sales can the mar­ket re­ally ac­com­mo­date? That’s a ques­tion I hear time af­ter time. With some auc­tion­eers adding more sales to their cal­en­dars as the year pro­gresses it can be said the mar­ket is in a good way, but it’s im­por­tant to look at the cars in those sales, be­cause on quite a few oc­ca­sions you’ll find some ‘pad­ding’ – mo­tors that have a ques­tion­able right to the clas­sic moniker. I know that one of the big­gest beefs with pun­ters is mod­ern cars be­ing added just to make up the num­bers. I can un­der­stand the need to make as much money as pos­si­ble from a sale, but mak­ing them ar­ti­fi­cially big­ger does no favours to the clas­sic auc­tion in­dus­try.
